Donovan Mitchell out for Warriors-Jazz game due to concussion

Both the Warriors and Utah Jazz will be without vital players Sunday when they face each other at Chase Center.

While Draymond Green still is out for the Warriors, Donovan Mitchell will miss his third straight game for the Jazz because he remains in the NBA’s concussion protocol.

Mitchell sustained the injury during Utah’s loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday night. Russell Westbrook appeared to make contact with Mitchell’s head just before halftime.
